In-depth review of vitamins key to vitiligo provides invaluable insights and guidance on effective ways to treat this skin pigmentation disorder. Vitiligo is a common, acquired skin disorder of pigmentation that can significantly impact quality of life. Experts believe oxidative stress plays a central role in the development of vitiligo and causes melanocyte damage. Research shows underlying mechanisms of vitiligo differ from person to person. People with this skin disorder are often deficient in vitamins that have an evidence-based connection to vitiligo, including vitamins B12, pantothenic acid (B5), C, D, E, folic acid, copper, and zinc.
This book introduces the Three-Prong ApproachTM for treating vitiligo, which mobilizes healing to inhibit disease advancement and restore skin pigment, using the three treatment modalities: vitamin/nutritional therapy, phototherapy, and topicals. Studies are presented analyzing vitamin/nutritional therapy alone and in combination with phototherapy. Patients and practitioners will discover vitamin therapy can slow progression of vitiligo and deliver some degree of repigmentation, with scientific evidence to back it up.
